Hosted by Lynxxx and Stephanie Arnaud, guests at the show were entertained by Banky W, Davido, Black Magic, Styl Plus, Julius Agu, Chi Gurl among others.
The success of the show has led to the endorsement of Runway Abuja as an official fascinating Nigeria event. In addtion to the main show, Runway 4 also featured a number of add on events such as the Runway Diamond Business Xpress Session, a seminar sponsored by Diamond Bank where selected guests in the fashion industry shed light on the real business of fashion.
